activity”. It is primarily a community-based project providing scope for empowering residents

Czech Healthy Cities receive methodological support to implement the principles of sustainable development

in practice and to introduce methods for quality management. Healthy cities, towns

and regions have long been one of the most advanced in carrying out evaluations according to the

LA21 method constituting the majority of the users of this method in the Czech Republic.

We provide our members with methodological support to integrate properly the LA21 method

with other methods and tools for quality management (ISO, EFQM, CAF, CSR, BSC, process

management, etc.) in conformity with methodological recommendations of the Ministry of the

Interior. Since 2016, we have been providing consultations in this area, including training and

tailor-made assistance with its implementation in accordance with the requirements of a particular

local authority through a project activity entitled “PORTFOLIO for integration of quality

management systems“.

Health Promotion

In accordance with the methodological recommendations of the World

Health Organization (WHO) and the Health 2020 Strategy, HCCZ strongly

encourages its members to promote health systemically. We collaborate

with the WHO Office Prague – Czech Republic, the Ministry of Health,

the National Institute of Public Health, the Institute of Health Information

and Statistics, the Health Literacy Institute and Regional Hygiene Stations.

MANAGEMENT TOWARDS

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Sustainable Development Audits

Serve as a tool for self-evaluation of cities in 10 areas (public administration, economy, transport, health,

social area, culture, etc.). They are used in the evaluation of the LA21 method but are generally useful as

an important analytical input for development strategy and planning. Guidance for Audits is the Methodology

of sustainable cities assessment, which HCCZ develops with Charles University and dozens

of experts. The methodology is approved in the WG LA21, the Ministry of the Environment provides

funding of the UR Audits.
